Not a car for the snowbelt
By Unhappy in Ohio on


1999 Toyota Camry Solara SE V6 2dr Coupe


Plain interior-where's foreign fit &
finish? Speed rated tires suicide in
snow. Windshield fogs. Main problem,
struts! Complained many times about
clunking noise. Dealer finds nothing
loose. After research, I uncover known
strut problem. Failing strut on an icy
road cause car to swish left into a
skid after hitting dip. $7,500 in sheet
metal damage, luckily no one hurt.
During repairs, rented 2003 Impala;
felt safe & in control for 1st time
since 5-99 when I bought 1st (& last!)
Toyota. Hurray for Mom's apple pie &
good ole American Chevrolet. (P.S. any
Solara lovers want to buy totally
repainted 99 SEV6? hahaha)

Best Features

The FOR SALE sign in the window.

Worst Features

Snow worthy. Fess up to failures, recall struts. Better service training to find serious repairs. Fix fogging. Match interior glamour to price. Sludge- driving short trips causes major oil sludge build up in motor.
